Hi everyone
I'm using Moto G stock device.
Recently I updated to stock 4.4.4 and since I can't type Kanji in Japanese.
Basically I am using the iWnn IME to pick the Japanese stock keyboard and then it lets me type in Hiragana but I can't change what I typed to Kanji. ( by pressing the Space key).

I also noticed that when I touch a letter while in Japanese keyboard then the popup letter isn't in Blue like it used to(and how its like when I type in English), it's now gray instead...

I tried all the settings in the keyboard screen(disabling an reenabling , none worked, tried searching Google but couldn't find any reference to this problem...

Any ideas how to fix this?


Well I found a "sort of" a solution , to download and use Google Japanese input from the app store... It works but its kinda " unnerving" that it says when you first use it that it can send everything you type including passwords to Google... WTF?
But then again I don't use it that much anyway definitely not for passwords and the such.

Most keyboards have strange permissions. I can only suggest you try different ones. And I wouldn't be too concerned about the privacy aspect....its the same with MANY apps.

However, if you want to ask why its not working as it did before, you can try asking in the Moto G Q&A

Good luck!
